Thanks for the tips gents.

Where would I find desiccant bags and how often should they be replaced or refreshed?

As long as you keep em lubed you'll be fine. I try to clean guns that haven't been used once a year just to get a fresh coat of lube on them.

They used to come with new tennis shoes. They're the little bags that have the warning on them about not eating the contents. Lol
The climate here is pretty dry, so they won't need to be baked very often. Maybe once in August and once in February when it rains the most.

Or you can get bags at any sporting goods store. Wal-Mart used to carry them but I haven't seen them there in ages. I trust the store bought ones that have actual baking instructions on the side so much more in the oven than those desiccant bags that come in just about everything now a days. That being said, I have a couple of those small desiccant bags that I will toss into a foam case if I don't have room for a bigger bag.

I don't store my guns in cases, a few are in gun socks to protect against dings.

the gun socks are silicon treated so they wick moisture away.

I keep the guns oiled/lubed. I keep a lubricant soaked rag (by soaked I mean its just full of CLP or Slip2000, not actually dripping) on top of the safe or in it. This way whenever I handle a blued gun, I can give it a quick wipe to remove any oils I may have put on it, and give it a nice thin coat for storage.

I don't particularly worry about guns that are stainless. I worry even less about the guns that are parkerized, or coated with something like duracoat/cerakote. Those get handled and put back without any special care, but then again, they tend to be the "working'" guns that I don't worry about a lil finish wear.

With the low low humidity we have here, I worry not. Had the safe for a good 2 years now, and never seen a spec of rust or moisture on the guns.

However, a dryer tube or some desiccant is a good idea. never hurts to be cautious.

Happy tax return (a little premature I know, but it's been accepted) to me.

Now the vast majority of it gets to go to government loans.

Looks right up your alley Marn!

I hope I don't get a tax return, government screws me over enough already, I don't wanna give them a free loan too
